There is also a coral reef just offshore with good dive locations or visitors can snorkel at either end of the beach where the rocks emerge.

In addition to the accommodation there are restaurants shops, bank services, and all kinds of recreational options with surfboards and windsurfing boards available for rent. Guardalavaca is quite remote with nothing of consequence in the nearby surrounding area so visitors are generally limited to the options provided by the resort.

The town of Banes makes a nice trip for visitors staying at the nearby resort of Guardalavaca, just 30km / 25mi away.

Loma de la Cruz
For panoramic views over the city try climbing the more than 450 stairs up to Loma de la Cruz (Hill of the Cross). This hilltop location has a lookout tower and a large cross. The cross was placed here on May 3, 1790 during a period of drought. Each year now local residents of Holguin climb up the stairs to Loma de la Cruz on May 3 in celebration of Romerias de la Cruz de Mayo. Considering the city is relatively flat and laid out in a typical grid pattern with no particular point of interest, the view, although extensive, may not be worth the climb.
